Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking

Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing

The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine

I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested

letterpress Birth Announcement notecards

As usual it is pretty hard to keep ruby out of product shots,
here she is again with a job I have just done for a lovely couple in Mt Nelson.
Notecards to send out to friends and family to announce the arrival of their new baby.
People seem to really like the debossed look, type without ink and just impression, I have to admit this works very well on the cotton rag paper I use for all of my stationery as it is soft velvety and thick and beautiful to write on.

Classic, Clean & Simple.
